Coronavirus and cancer hijack the same parts in human cells to spread - and our team identified existing cancer drugs that could fight COVID-19

Most antivirals in use today target parts of an invading virus itself. Unfortunately, SARS-CoV-2 - the virus that causes COVID-19 - has proven hard to kill. But viruses rely on cellular mechanisms in human cells to help them spread, so it should be possible to change an aspect of a person's body to prevent that and slow down the virus enough to allow the immune system to fight the invader off.I am a quantitative biologist, and my lab built a map of how the coronavirus uses human cells. We used that map to find already existing drugs that could be repurposed to fight COVID-19 and have been working with an international group of researchers called the QBI Coronavirus Research Group to see...

Fighting the elements, not the enemy, on India's China border

Death is a real and constant danger for the soldiers serving on India's Himalayan border with China, but until a deadly brawl on June 15 the only killers since 1975 have been the topography and the elements. "We get more than 100 casualties every year just due to terrain, weather conditions, avalanches... There is constant danger," said retired Lt.

Instead, López Obrador is leading like a conservative in many ways - cutting spending, investing heavily in fossil fuel development and helping the U.S. crack down on the northbound flow of migrants. As coronavirus spreads through Mexico, the president known as AMLO has rejected widespread shutdowns and pressed to keep the economy going.
